CEO of Fitek Group Mait Sooaru says: “Fitek is in an exciting era – we are helping our customers to transition to fully digital financial processes. New managing director of Fitek Latvia, Edgars Strazds has very suitable background to work with our team: he has been in several leading positions in SEB, he knows technology, banking and financial processes in businesses. And last but not least, he is a well-known leader.”
